The Kishiwada Danjiri Matsuri and Haruki Danjiri Matsuri are held during the weekend before Respect for Aged Day (national holiday) which is the third Mon. in Sept. Hundreds of people pull and run with wooden danjiri floats around the central streets near Nankai Kishiwada Station and Haruki Station in Kishiwada, Osaka. They also light up the floats at night. One of Japan's most famous festivals. These photos were taken on Sept. 19-20, 2009. Also see my video at YouTube.
